In the next few days Stilgherrian will be travelling to Tanzania for Action Aid’s TOTO project. It is to set up and teach local officers to make use of social media to communicate to the world. Ideally, he is going to Africa to teach them how to blog their activities.
It has been hyped up on Twitter and bloggersphere for a while. And this could be a study case in many ways. It will be some culture shocks between revolutionary waves, organisations and Stilgherrian’s own struggle.
We are talking about a colonised country that has not been industrialised in this hyperconnected world, a non-government organization exposing and reflecting themselves through social media and a person who only once has been out of his motherland.
Although it is only a week he will be there, this test match has so many layers in it. Hopefully, they will achieve quite an experience working in Tanzania.
